suffering and change- you know, one great sociologist of religion i think was someone like- someone, maybe thomas o'day said- you know, someone asked him for a definition of religion, and he said, "we have religion because we die and because we suffer and because we constantly are buffeted by the changes of life. and we want to know why. but so often, you know, as we have here, we can't get the answers through science. interestingly enough, if you start looking around, you know, watch the news mags. people think religion doesn't count. i swear, about every fifth major news magazine has on the cover something about religion, and here we have, of course, "science finds god." well, it's about time. whooo, yes! very interesting article. science- science, with its own authority and its own methods and own mythology and own rituals, a chance to find answers about the unexplainable. religion goes about it in a very different way, but very interesting how scientists are coming together. yeah, jamie? >> what issue was that? >> let me find out. let's see, it says january 1st, year 2000. just kidding

, coolidge continued to return to the declaration because it was a product of religion and education which he called the twin supports of civilization. as he rose to an episcopalian sunday school teacher in washington d.c. in 1927, quote, the foundations of our society and government rest so much on the teachings of the bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith and its teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country. coolidge called for a religious revival in his day and i think he would argue even in our own. religious teachings about how man should live need to be universal for america's republic to in door. we should remember coolidge was not sectarian, his fine speeches were given to jewish groups and catholic groups that would not necessarily have agreed with his more protestant orientation. he did think religion was important as being a = citizen. in coolidge's you we can reduce man's quality for reason and revelation and we can go to the project of instituting a government where men serve one another. on this point coolidge quoted the theologia

guidance we also made it clear while we don't have jurisdiction over religion in the same way we don't over sexual orientation, what we're seeing in all of these -- and all of these are case by case, you can't just broad sweep the laws -- when students are bullied and harassed in this world because of religion, in most instances a lot of that is not about race or religion, it's because. perception that students that share certain religious traits also share certain ethnicities and that is discrimination and that falls under title 6. it is not just about enforcing the laws that make it clear how the laws apply. it is, though, as we said, you can't get at this through enforcement alone. this is a culture that tolerates this and in too many ways promotes it. as tom mentioned we have an unprecedented partnership not just between our agencies but agencies across the federal government that the president has convened to bring our best resources and minds to bear to do something about it. there is now a web site, where a tool kit is being developed and these kinds of best pra

about it. this is not necessarily a bad thing. this civic religion about the constitution and what it stands for is one of the things that holds this very disparate country together. the constitution does not do a lot of the things of the people think it does. most people seem to think that it guarantees their right to do whatever it may be they really want to do, be it walk around or have aan francisco weapon. doesn't giveion us as many answers as we might think. it gives us machinery known as the government and all its ramifications to figure out these things. that is probably the most important lesson i learned. host: we invite our viewers to of npr. peter sagal the phone numbers are on your screen. this program is called "constitution usa" and will be on pbs starting this tuesday. how many segments will we see over this month? .uest: four segments the first is federalism. then we will do a quality, a final segment about whether or not the constitution has held up over , and whether it can continue into the future. one topic in the series is medical marijuana. we have a clip from t

afraid to invite speakers in to talk about any religion, but particularly islam, there's not always a clear understanding to what the first amendment guarantees, which is the right to teach about a religion but not proselytize about it. i think there's fear of associating with anyone associated with islam. there are events outside our control that creates more interest and unfortunately also makes people more afraid. one of the programs we are about to launch is putting all our content online so a teacher in north dakota where there are no muslim, potentially, no expert can come to her classroom, they can go to our web site and download the content and teach the things we are teaching. >> i think partnerships are the best way to overcome the limitations because we all have limitations. and sometimes it's just visibility. we actually have on our web site 50 short films and one of them is a muslim student from a school in fremont going to a school in arinda talking about what it's like going to school as a muslim in the united states and they are asking questions and you see we are all

people people or religion from religion. we believe opening up of the gate of our memory we are bringing people closer together and showing what an individual can do. those who saved the lives, all these christians to saved lives while risking their own, every one of them is a hero. [applause] i also remember it that once [inaudible] they organized a group for the liberators. we brought liberators from all over the world. i spoke to them. havere now the first to seen us. you were the first free men and women who have seen us. you be our witnesses. i was going to one to another. tell me what gave you the courage to resist? what gave you the courage to become a hero? all of them answer me, we heroes? if my neighbor was in danger, how could i not offer him a place in my cellar for attic? i said to myself, in those times it was enough to be human to become a hero. my good friends, we are trying to honor not to make heroes but to make the visitor a messenger. president clinton 20 years ago here in this place, it was raining. he was soaked. our shoes were in water. i saw them, yours a

. people told us that it w our religion. if you don't do it you'll be going against your religion. all this is false. but i alone can't do this in the village. >> reporter: doing this alone could render ones daughters unmarriageable. so one of tostan's most critical roles today is to lessen the stigma by getting whole communities and others into which they might marry to jointly declare an end to cutting. public rallies called declarations have increased to include hundreds of villages who gather to celebrate the decision. >> one part of bringing about a change like this is to get everyone to change at once, what we called coordinated abandonment. everyone has to see that everyone else sees that everyone is changing. >> never in my wildest dreams could i have imagined that i would be sitting here years later, saying that 4,792 communities in senegal had abandoned. in the beginning it was just un- thought of, unbelievable, because it was so taboo. >> reporter: since our visit the number of communities has grown to more than 5,000 and many have also pledged to change another tradition: t

a line and become a danger? charles kimball is author of "when religion becomes evil." dr. kimball joining us from norman, oklahoma. good to see you, doctor. >> thank you, fredricka. nice to be with you. >> is there a way to summarize this? who is most vulnerable to becoming a religious extremist of any type of following or faith? >> well, we now can look across the different religious traditions and through the centuries and i think identify some of the warning signs, none of these indicate that somebody or some group is going to go off and become violent extremists but a combination of these often should send up flags of concern and the one that jumps most immediately to mind -- there are several that apply perhaps in this case is the warning sign of the end justifies the means where some particular end is deemed as extremely important and then people justify anything to meet that end. in the case of the younger brother, we have one of the postings apparently where he said when you have the knowledge and the inspiration, all that's left is to take action. knowledge presumably is

america. the first country in the world founded not on a race, not on a religion, not on a royalty, but on a set of god-given principles that we call in alienable rights. [applause] we as americans come from that long line of patriots who broke from king george to live their own lives as free people. and nowhere does freedom of anymore and our second amendment right to own a firearm to defend ourselves, our families, and our nation. [applause] without that freedom, we really aren't free at all. there is nothing more good and right and normal in america and an honest american citizen owning a firearm to defend himself or protect her family. [applause] they can try to blame us, shame us, with all their might. when it comes to defending the second amendment, we will never sacrifice our freedom on the altar of elitist acceptance. we will never surrender our guns, never. [applause] you are the voice of america. they are hearing from you right now. more americans today understand the principle of the second amendment. the freedom it gives us as individuals. to be responsible for our own

jobs dropped out of college, studied eastern religions, designed video games for atari. i received a letter from a 6-1/2-year-old boy which sums up what we've accomplished. "dear mr. jobs, "my crossword puzzle clue was, as american as apple... "i thought the answer was computer, but mom said it was pie." steve wozniak won a science fair at 12, designed computers in high school, and raised money to build one six years later. i took it with my tv to the club and demonstrated to everybody. "look how small this is, and i built it myself." atari's founder, nolan bushnell, recalls a video game they created. i had one project that everyone turned down. it was a game called breakout. finally i said, "steve, hey, do this for me." and he said, "done." wozniak wasn't on the payroll and jobs was. they worked something out in the evening. two weeks later, in a project that traditionally took months, we had a prototype. in january 1976, jobs, the promoter, began pestering wozniak, the designer, to build some printed circuit boards so other hobbyists could build their own computers. we invested $1,

contact with a person of another race or religion. and then i had another trial after this was done in another jurisdiction that shall go unnamed, and i would say there were maybe 5 percent of the jurors, potential jurors, who had had meaningful contact with a person of a different race or ethnicity and that's really what this is about. one of my least favorite words is the word tolerance because, you know, i tolerate brussel sprouts but if you simply tolerate the diversity that is america, you are going to, you are aspiring for mediocrity. when we have, and this gets back to your question, when we have leaders that embrace diversity and that build a culture that says, you know what, if you want to compete in the global economy tomorrow, pal, you've got to embrace diversity. why does coca-cola write a brief to the united states supreme court and general motors and microsoft on issues of diversity and higher education? because they know if they want to get ahead, they've got to embrace that diversity. if they want to continue to be a fortunes 50 company, there's got to embrace diversity
